Sundance Cinemas Madison

An Insider's Guide to Sundance Cinemas in Madison

Sundance Cinemas Madison is one of the most extraordinary movie theatres in the country. Located in the Hilldale Mall, Sundance Cinemas is a 6 screen complex created and designed with the movie-goer in mind. Voted the best place in Madison to watch a movie by Isthmus readers (7 years in a row) and Madison Magazine, we work hard to make your visit a memorable one.

  • Reserved Seat Ticketing. All seats for all shows are sold reserved. Pick your favorite seat online at, at our ticketing kiosks, or at the box office. There is no extra cost to buy and print advance tickets at home. Sign up for our email blast to know what is coming before anyone else! Not sure what film you want to see? Ask our knowledgeable staff of movie buffs.
  • Amenity Fee.  Sundance Cinemas adds a small fee to the ticket price that varies by the day of the week and time of the day.  This ranges from no charge for the first show of the day Monday through Thursday, to $3.25 per ticket for evening shows on Friday and Saturday nights.  The Fee schedule is available on the website or at the box office.  The Amenity Fee is uniformly charged for tickets purchased on the web, at the box office or at the kiosks.  The Amenity Fee covers the costs of being “green”, customer services such as reserved seating, and offsets the lost income from forgoing on screen advertising revenues which we believe diminish the movie going experience.
  • Free Parking. Ample free parking 7 days a week.  
  • Art Gallery.Our Art Gallery is located across from the Box Office and in the North Lounge. Every three months, a new local Madison artist is featured. We also sell local artist merchandise including Rugs, Handbags, Jewelry and more.
  • Special events, parties and screenings.We host a wide variety of special events, screenings and film festivals. Our unique 2nd floor Bar & Bistro is the perfect place for your next party, reception or meeting. Our extensive catering menu is available online. We will work with you to make your event something your friends, family or colleagues will enjoy and remember.
  • Carry your food and drink to your seat from the Caffe.Everything we serve is designed to be enjoyed at your seat during the show, as well as in the lounges. Handy seat trays allow you to enjoy your pizza, salad or sandwich along with a glass of wine, beer or cocktail right in your plush theatre seat.
  • Traditional concessions plus more.In addition to our food and beverage items we also offer organic white popcorn (with real butter), soda, and candy, locally made baked goods, smoothies and Peet’s Coffee & Teas. Don’t be afraid of the line! Sundance staffers are quick on their feet and you will be served in time for your film.
  • Please put your trash in the right bin.Sundance works hard to cut down on waste and recycle our plastic, glass products and bottles.  We are the only theatre in town to compost our food waste, coffee filters, and “Spudware”.
